Overview


Synopsis

Based on the hit play and movie The Rainmaker, 110 in the Shade focuses on one unmarried woman named Lizzie living in a small western town besieged by a long drought. Lizzie is dealing with another type of drought: her love life. Intelligent yet plain, she is worried that she will soon become an old maid with no one to love her. When a charismatic man named Starbuck arrives and claims the ability to make rain, Lizzie believes he is a con man with no abilities whatsoever. Little does she know that this man will change her life forever. A beautiful musical in the vein of Rodgers and Hammerstein, 110 in the Shade centers on Lizzie’s quest for self-acceptance and her choice between two suitors: the rainmaker Starbuck and the divorced Sheriff File.
